  1. Help your customers

    I called customer service many times today. I'm partially blind so I called disability services about my account. I was hung up on three times today. Spent an hour on the phone with no resolution. My suggestion is help your customers.

      • back to the drawing board! After 10 days of using the beta I really dislike it.

        1. Get the "new Message" link back to above the reading pane!
        That Delete there is killing me and it's in the same place where Send is when you compose a new message. I continually hit send and then see my cursor over the Delete and plotz! Like did I just DELETE that whole thing?
        2. The Delete on top left of reading pane also has led to me deleting a lot of messages I mean to reply to-- then I have to go to Deleted folder, restore them and start over. What is the point?
        3. And every time…

        • Need clarification (domain vs alias vs connected account)

          I need some clarifications between a few things :

          For instance :

          1- I can set up a personal email address (me@mydomain.com) in the settings to change the from-line of the composer. So I can use that email address to send an email within Outlook.com. And I can have those message sent to that email address forwarded to my Outlook.com account => FREE > That's what I'm doing

          2- I can go premium with a custom domain and therefore send and receive message from and to outlook.com => PAID

          3- I can use this same personal email address…

          • How about making a email template for emails that you make often like follow up, quick reply, sales, checking on friends, a pitch, letter et

            Compose email from prewritten templates with words already, just have to adjust names or places. That was just a freestyle idea. Need more hit me up.

            • Seriously? No Resend?

              It is absolutely asinine there is no resend function. Resend is a basic email function--you don't even have a "basic email functions" category under which I can place this feedback, which reflects the engineering team's lack of focus on what's actually important in an email service. Having to use time-consuming work-arounds is a colossal failure of product design. Outlook.com should incorporate essential features--like resend--before adding clever, seldom-used gadgets like facilitating GIF insertion, unless you want Outlook.com to become a mere plaything for teenagers. You're right on target for that.

                  • Composing messages not in reading pane

                    Beta: if the reading pane is swithed on, composing messages also happens in the reading pane, alongside folder overview en contents of the current folder. This way half of the screen is occupied with information I do not need nor want to see while composing messages.

                    I looked through the options, there seems to be no way to switch this behaviour off. Only to switch off the reading pane completely.

                    • Allow users to turn off suggested recipients through outlook.com

                      Users should be allowed to turn off the suggested recipients when composing emails through outlook.com. Though this feature can be useful in certain circumstances, on occasions it is very annoying as it suggests recipients I have no contact with and even people who I do not know nor have ever made contact with, where they are part of a group email. Whilst I have tried deleting suggested recipients individually by clicking on the cross next to their email addresses, the same recipients are still showing up at a later date.

                      • Enable Creating Email Templates on outlook.com (Browser)

                        Currently, email templates can only be created on the outlook.com application. Would be good if this function can be extended to the browser as well.

                        • Composing mail through Outlook.com is worst

                          The new outlook.com lacks many features of the old outlook mail online. Composing mail is almost featureless. There are no options for basic text-editing (which are seen in onenote) and adding link. Link preview which is very useful feature has also been removed. Please add these features back to outlook developers, otherwise it won't be the primary mail app of anyone.

                                • Avoiding an accidentally sending of incomplete 'Reply All'

                                  On my official company outlook email of 'reply all', there is a risk of hitting send button while reply was still not completed. For such a large forum, I would like to hit reply all, hit lock button (new button to be available on reply all screen), complete the reply, hit unlock button (caption changed to unlock when you locked) , hit send. I think this will be a good edition for all the important replies that need some thinking but is addressed to many important people.
